Robotic Book Scanner ROBO SCAN V2

The robotic book scanner ROBO SCAN V2 is the most versatile robotic book scanner in the market. It offers the advantages of a robot combined with the convenience of a manual book scanner. The ROBO SCAN V2 was designed for realistic digitization projects where the robotic part can do most of the job, but the same scanner is also able to handle problematic books in manual mode.

The robotic book scanner ROBO SCAN V2 is a unique product which offers robotic and manual scanning in the same unit. Moreover, originals can be scanned in different orientations. For best results, the use of a glass plate is recommended. The whole procedure of turning the pages, moving the V-shaped glass plate up and down and releasing the scan is a fully automated process.

Scanning books without exposing them to any pressure or simply contact-free is also possible. The V-shaped glass can be removed within less than one minute.

The ROBO SCAN V2 also allows you to scan manually. If there is a problematic book that the robotic arm can‘t handle, the robotic function can be disabled, and the pages can be turned manually.

In fact, the ROBO SCAN V2 offers even more! It is also possible to change the book cradle from V-shape to flat in order to scan magazines, photographs, maps, or any other single sheet originals.

The ROBO SCAN V2 can be operated via touch panel or optionally with Batch Scan Wizard which is a fast and easy to use software solution for professional management of large scanning volumes and jobs. The software increases data throughput and reduces operational tasks substantially. Batch Scan Wizard is ideal for processing large volume scanning jobs but is just as useful for smaller volumes in which more advanced operations like page splitting or extracting specific areas on a document are required.

A2 Book Scanner SCAN MASTER 2

The A2 book scanner that handles the big boys!

The SCAN MASTER 2 is a special A2 book scanner. It was basically designed for applications that require a very high optical resolution and where the books are very thick. With its 35 cm motorized book cradle the SCAN MASTER 2 is able to handle books that other A2 book scanners are unable to cope with. Operating the SMA SCAN MASTER 2 A2 book scanner is easy and convenient. Simply place the book and hit the scan button. The rest of the process is fully automatic. All the operator has to do is to flip the page and release the scan. All SMA scanners are equipped with a special LED light illuminator that does not produce any ultraviolet or infrared radiation. Harmless and uniform illumination is guaranteed. The illuminator of all SMA scanners is located inside the scan head and is simply moved across the original. As a result, all SMA book scanners can be operated independent from ambient light and do not irritate the operator‘s eyes.

The SCAN MASTER A2 book scanner comes with V3D Technology – a new scanning technology which allows users to scan many different types of originals. It offers the capability of digitizing structured surfaces such as wood, rubber, plastic, fabrics, carpet and many more types of material. Finally, light reflecting items such as coins, seals, metal prints and silver or Gold coated originals can be captured at the highest quality. V3D technology presents new opportunities as it can be applied to materials outside the normal archive and library world. V3D stands for VISUAL 3D. It is a newly designed scanning technology that produces results that look like 3D. The process is based on different lighting scenarios where the same area is being captured with several different lighting scenarios on the fly. The software then combines the separate images into one image. As a result, V3D images offer perfect reproductions of nearly any structured surface. In addition, it increases the depth of field significantly. This approach is unique and raises the outstanding image quality of SMA scanners to another level. The V3D function can be disabled and regular 2D scanning can be performed.
